COLLOQUIA
Diffraction limited imaging in the visible with large ground-based telescopes

Prof. Craig McKay

Abstract

A new method of imaging in the visible has given the highest resolution images ever taken anywhere. It needs a natural guide star of only 18.5 mag (I band). This talk will show how it can be done on the WHT, the VLT and even on the GTC.
